Do you believe in Karma? If so, have you truly experienced it?

The term 'Karma' is a one of the many concepts of Indian Religions, nevertheless it has been acknowledged across the world by many, not as a concept of religion, but as a general theme that teaches the power of good 'action' or 'deed'. It can be demonstrated by the phrase 'What goes around comes around'.

I was thought by my parents that if you do good, it will always return to you one day. But seeing the current scenario where people fight over each other for a place, fame, position etc and when you see children and women in some part of the world suffer for no bad they have done, its hard to believe Karma exists. I feel the whole concept of karma has faded in todays competitive world and would like to see a different take on it. It always good to know that 'Karma' exists!!

    Jul 25 2013: I enjoy the idea of karma and live my life as if it is true...as for evidence of it..ipersonally have little ..however in the realms of other unusual events ,,,i do have experience and am willing to include things unseen in my moral compass..because my focus is based in controlling only myself and really investigating this illusion of life...I havent alot of time or need or time for doing evil deeds,or getting lots of money,or competeing or harming...not interested,dosent feel good to me..so Id rather spen my time attempting to do the impossible and peer behind the veil...in tiny increments

      Jul 26 2013: Very rare to meet someone like this, I should say. Everywhere you go its only about people climbing over each other to get to the top or make quick money. And the thing is many do succeed and do very well... is that because they dont believe in karma, so they can live it the way they want?
